ONE LESS TO WORRY ABOUT

By David Vance On April 18th, 2014 at 12:50 pm

I see that Britain continues to export Jihadists and here is one who will not be coming back to constitute a threat to the rest of us;

Police are investigating reports that an 18-year-old Briton from East Sussex has been killed in Syria. Abdullah Deghayes (Typical British name) from Saltdean, near Brighton, told his family that he was travelling to Libya in January but did not tell them he was going to Syria. Deghayes, whose uncle, Omar, is a former Guantánamo detainee, is believed to have died earlier this month. A photo circulating among former school friends, which appears to show Abdullah dead and laid out on the ground, has been seen by the Guardian. The photo, which seems to have been taken at night with a flash, shows him from the chest up lying on a patch of ground scattered with leaves and foliage. The 18-year-old is dressed in combat fatigues and his eyes are closed

It’s remarkable how the Jihad calls these young men to kill or be killed. And all in the name of the self proclaimed Religion of peace.

it all depends on your ‘Point of View’

By Mike Cunningham On April 18th, 2014 at 9:40 am

It is, unfortunately, a fact of life that anyone in Great Britain with even vaguely ‘centrist’ or ‘right-of-centre views’ perceives the BBC as an organ of the Left;  a broadcaster with a built-in bias against anybody, any politician, any Party, which views political life in this country in opposition to its own, narrow, egocentrically left-wing, liberally-biased viewpoint.

The Biased BBC blog, edited consistently by our own David, gives graphic illustration of that built-in bias against anyone who does not share, whole-heartedly, the BBC’s viewpoint.

Peruse, if you would, the following comments following a Guardian report on a statement by Eric Pickles on council propaganda news-sheets:-

He will have to close the BBC down, that spouts Tory propaganda on every news programme.

Well said, couldn’t agree more. I can barely watch the BBC news these days, it’s so full of Tory propaganda.

You’ll enjoy this headline.

My 85 year old Mum mentioned the BBC tonight. She said she had stopped watching the BBC News because its a Tory party broadcast.
She’s switched to Channel 4. I might do the same.

My query is quite simple: are these people on the same planet as the rest of us?

 

BANKING ON AXELROD….

By David Vance On April 18th, 2014 at 9:33 am

In a way, this will be fun.

The Labour Party has appointed US election strategist David Axelrod as a strategic adviser on leader Ed Miliband’s 2015 election campaign. Mr Axelrod was a key architect of Barack Obama’s victory over John McCain in the 2008 presidential race. He will work alongside shadow foreign secretary, Douglas Alexander, who is to run Labour’s general election strategy. Labour will also call on Mr Axelrod’s consulting, firm AKVD, in its bid to win power, BBC Newsnight revealed.

Good luck with that one. Labour; the party that whilst in Government presided over the crash of our economy; the party that ran up wartime level of debt; the party that encouraged immigration without end; and the party that is supine when it comes to the European Union. It will take more than Axelrod to persuade the British people that this mob are suddenly fit for Government when they spend 13 years proving how UNFIT they were when in it. Oh, and here’s Ed…

MORE JUDICIAL COMMON SENSE…

By David Vance On April 18th, 2014 at 9:13 am

Yesterday, I reported on the common sense spoken by a Judge as he stepped down from the Bench. Here’s another voice of judicial sanity..

Judge Richard Bray ­condemned the police for failing to bring criminals to court to save themselves time and governments for creating useless policy in a bid to cut costs and win votes. The judge said: “Over the years I’ve seen a number of government initiatives with sentencing. We’ve had suspended sentences introduced, abolished then introduced again. “All this tinkering about is more to do with money and votes rather than criminal justice while all the while the prison population has continued to rise. None of the government initiatives have worked. “The final solution government has reached is by preventing courts from being given the chance to send offenders to prison and make their savings that way.” The judge’s reputation is such that a former pupil said many of those who had been jailed by him called it a rite of ­passage to be “Brayed”.

Oh, he is also stepping down from the Bench.

KILLER SWEDISH MEATBALLS!

By David Vance On April 18th, 2014 at 9:03 am

I chuckled at this story, it concerns how the Swedish Furniture giant IKEA has been examining the condition of its balls.

Ikea is developing a new ‘green’ version of its famous Swedish meatballs in order to cut carbon emissions and help tackle climate change, the retailer has revealed. The flat-pack furniture giant sells an estimated 150 million meatballs, made from beef and pork, in its cafes each year. But the popular snack is also the least environmentally-friendly item on the Ikea menu, because of high carbon dioxide emissions involved in the farming process and high methane gas emissions from cattle. Ikea is so concerned about the contribution to global warming from the meatballs that it is now developing “vegetarian meatballs” as an eco-friendly alternative.

Those pesky flatulent cows, eh? Actually, this will suit me as I am vegetarian and would never eat Ikea meatballs but you DO have to wonder at the self indulgence of those within IKEA that think by them switching production away from cattle that will somehow “save the planet”. It won’t.

ANNA LO ON AN ARTIFICIAL HIGH?

You do have to smile at the sheer political arrogance on display. The United Ireland supporting Anna Lo, who is the Alliance’s European candidate here in Northern Ireland , reckons her views will NOT stop unionists supporting her! 

 

Alliance Euro-candidate Anna Lo has admitted being “flabbergasted” by the furore over her controversial Irish unity remarks.  But she added she did not believe her comments would cost the party votes from unionists – and that she had not come in for criticism on the doorsteps.  Ms Lo called the partition of Ireland “artificial” and argued that a united Ireland would be “better placed economically, socially and politically”.

Right. So, vote for Lo who seeks to end the Union. That sounds an appealing recipe for..erm..unionists?

I saw her election posters have just gone up, and they are truly appalling, childish even,  and I hope to get a picture to share with you. Lo takes political vacuity to a whole new level but then again we like stupid here so who knows, maybe the anti-Union Lo will win over unionists without a cerebellum?

 

 

“YOU SAY SHARIA, I SAY POTATO…”

I wonder just how supine our Government can be when it comes to appeasing Muslims? Just two stories to make my point;
